Erwin Halder KG with an extended range
Flexible, space-saving fulcrum screws
Compensation of sloping, stepless height settings
Whether in tool and machine construction, medical environments or the electronics industry - the standard products of Erwin Halder KG are used everywhere. Mounting pads, for example, can be used as foot and thrust pads. The company has now increased its range by adding new, space-saving fulcrum screws which can be screwed directly into the base area. The fulcrum screws allow you to compensate for unevenness and are suitable for a multitude of areas of use.
For precise and reliable production, the secure footing of fixtures, machines and systems is indispensable. However, flat surfaces are not always available. The solution which also allows such equipment to be positioned securely on uneven surfaces is a flexible support, with, for example, swivelling base elements. To this end, Erwin Halder KG from Achstetten-Bronnen offers different versions of suitable mounting pad and has recently started to supply flexible, fulcrum screws which can be used in diverse scenarios.
Easily compensate for unevenness
Bernd Janner, Sales Executive of Erwin Halder KG: "The mounting pads can be used as foot and thrust pads. The ball joint makes them so flexible that they can easily compensate for inclines between the workpiece and surface. They have a thread bolt which can serve to fasten fixtures, machines and systems at different heights by using two nuts." The mounting pads are available in different versions: with pad and ball element made from blackened heat-treated steel or 1.4305 stainless steel, as well as with a pad made from thermoplastic and a ball element made from stainless steel. The maximum load-bearing capacity of heat-treated steel is 65 kN, and 52 kN for stainless steel. The thermoplast type can be used under forces of up to 25 kN and in a temperature range between -30 and +80 °C. As well as the type with a thread bolt, there are also mounting pads without pins so as to be able to use your own bolts, threaded rods or similar. All versions are available in thread sizes from M 6 and M 24. Special versions are also available on request.
Our mounting pads with mounting holes in the pad offer an even higher level of safety," explains Bernd Janner. "They can be fixed to the substrate with bolts, which extends their range of application." They too are available in thread sizes between M6 and M24, are made of 1.4305 stainless steel and can withstand structural loads of up to 52 kN. Here, the user can also choose between a versions with and without thread bolts.
Fulcrum screws for diverse applications
Erwin Halder KG has now added fulcrum screws to its range. They can be screwed simply and comfortably into the component and therefore save more space than mounting pads. In addition, different distances can be compensated for using the male thread. Attached spanner flats and a hollow hexagon allow the fulcrum screws to be installed easily.
The version made from blackened heat-treated steel can bear up to 45 kN; the version made from stainless steel up to a maximum of 36 kN. The user has the choice of the following sizes: M 6, 8, 10, 12 and 16 for the mounting pad. "The fulcrum screws have been constructed so as to allow inclinations up to an angle of 15° to be compensated," according to Bernd Janner.
In addition to their use as thrust pads, the fulcrum screws are suited to supporting and fastening housing in inclined positions. Their compact construction also allows them to be used as hinges in connection equipment. Both the mounting pads and the fulcrum screws can, for example, be used as screw-adjustable feet for machines when the floor is uneven.
